True,  I didn’t look that closely.

An AMG S320?  I’m thinking not.

Around here S320s struggle with competition from the big boys (S500/600) and 
don’t seem to command the prices the higher displacement models do.  
Occasionally you’ll come across a really nice one like my GoodFellows seller 
had that justifies a higher price, but for the most part they’re beaters.

There definitely seems to be more of them than the larger displacement cars, 
however.  I never realized this until I started shopping.

 OTOH, for $3k what do you expect?

That, sir, is a _relative_ measure of quality!
Can be a pretty low bar to entry, in other words.

He said outright that the wheels, which look identical to the wheels on my 1997, 
are AMG. Maybe he put AMG by Alibaba valve stem caps on them?


Mitch, who is thinking about ordering 20 or 50 of the tristar valve caps, but 
don't want no fake AMGs.

I haven't pulled the trigger on any yet, but the Carfax Used Car Sales 
tool seems to be pretty well done.  Lots of ways to dial in the search 
and a lot of cars available BTW.   I like the guide that says if the 
prices are above or below the book price.


Does anyone now if the 94 to 99-ish E class wagons came with a diesel?   
If they did, I'm not having any luck finding them...

Downhill with a tailwind?

I get over 20 MPG in pretty much 50-50 mixed city/highway driving in my S430.  
The SL500 can do the same with the hardtop on.

Unless the R350CDI counts, but that's probably out of the price range Larry is
looking at. 

But, 30mpg hwy is possible (premium fuel only) from a 98-03 e320 gasser.
